AT THE BAR

Don’t come to me with tears in your eyes
Pretend you’re sorry then say goodbye
I’ve seen that look on your face before
Never enough, you always want more.

Where’d you meet … THE TIKI BAR?
Did you makeout …. out in your car?
Ask her to dance, give her that wink
Offer to buy her another cold drink?

All that charm …. good for a while
Who can resist that look, that smile?
You pull them in …you get your way
You got it down, know what to say.

Broken hearts…. not 3 or 4
Maybe twenty, maybe more
Always chasing some sweet thing
While someone else waits in the wings.

Once you’re sure to have your way
You’ll plan out your getaway
She’ll be crying….you won’t care
You won’t change…. you don’t play fair.

You’ll come along… tears in your eyes
Pretend you’re sorry then say goodbye
I’ve seen you act this way before
It’s never enough, you’ll always want more.

  1. This is good stuff , I think … less spleen, more humor. All you need is someone to write you some music. I love the refrain of “it’s never enough, you’ll always want more …” it’s got good syncopation. In a song, it would go: It’s never enough,…2-3-4…you’ll always want more.
